Vanderpump Rules‘s Tom Schwartz dished on how his friends/costars are holding up in the aftermath of ‘Scandoval’ – the Tom Sandoval and Raquel Leviss affair that provided a cultural reset for reality tv lovers.

A photog from TMZ caught up with the VPR star and gave status updates on the saga that rocked the Bravosphere.


Schwartz noted his TomTom and Schwartz & Sandy’s partner is “ok, relatively speaking” but has “a sense of profound sadness” for cheating on his girlfriend of nine years, Ariana Madix.

“He feels like a piece of shit, and to some extent, maybe he is.”

“He knows he fucked up,” confessed Schwartz before adding, “The whole thing is really sad.”


Tom Schwartz made it clear he concerned for Ariana’s well being and is glad she’s has “a really good support system.”

Although he isn’t “sure where she is,” he knows “she’s with her friends.”

“I hope she’s living the good life just indulging. I hope she goes on a living spree.”


Schwartzie admits he hasn’t been touch with the Bambi-eyed b!tch since the world learned of her tryst with Sandoval.

“I haven’t talked to Raquel. I haven’t seen or talked to her since this whole thing started. It’s just really unfortunate.” … agreed, for Ariana!


Contrary to images I’ve seen online featuring crowded lounges, Schwartz mentioned that this scandal has affected their bottom line.

“I’m really sad about the negative impact it’s having on our business, but I think cooler heads will prevail. I’m just going to keep on keeping on.”

The photog mentioned the recent spike in Pump Rules viewership to a flippant Schwartz.

“The last thing I’m worried about is ratings. I’m just worried about Ariana.”

“I’m just hoping this whole thing blows over.”
